In-depth Discussion Await at VB2007 on Fight Against Organized Cyber-Crime

International agencies on law enforcement are preparing to join together at the VB2007 anti-malware conference going to held in Vienna in September 2007 to give an in-depth information about the work that the international police forces take up to combat organized cyber crime.

Organized cyber-crime is progressively advancing with the help of tools for crimeware developed to carry out online scam operations and to steal data from enterprises and consumers. This generates more money in the business of keeping data secured. It also leads to stiff competition within the organization and consumer segments.

Cyber crime has become one of the most significant avenues for revenue for world organized crime, said Katie Gotzen, an analyst at Frost and Sullivan. Vnunet.com published this in the second week of July 2007.

Organized crime has been making lot of profit out of cyber-crime, so much that criminals are using it to meet the expenses of other underground operations, stated Erez Liebermann, Assistant U.S. Attorney, chief of the computer hacking and IP (Intellectual Property) section in New Jersey's U.S. Attorney's Office. Informationweek.com published this in the third week of July 2007.

There will be a wide discussions at the conference. These will be on the present state of the high-tech organized crime, the difficulties that law enforcement face while performing their job across the length and width of national jurisdictions, inter-working relationships of world task forces, exchange of intelligence and information, and projects for the future.

It is a delight for VB to host the panel discussion that provides delegates an opportunity to clarify their queries directly from those enforcing the legislations, said Helen Martin, Editor of Virus Bulletin. Virusbtn.com published this on August 24, 2007.

Many questions have come up recently, such as a report from the Science and Technology Committee of UK's House of Lords asked about the level of achievement by international task forces in its battle against the organized cyber crime, Martin continued.
